Carly loves the sunshine and playing outside...she has exactly the appropriate amount of energy for a 9 - 12 month old, 15 lb healthy pup. She would do great with a family who is home a lot to take walks, cuddle with and play together at the park or in the yard - she would love that! After she's had exercise and stimulation, she's ready to chill on the couch. Carly loves to snuggle, be petted and has been said to not get overly grumpy about very much. Her potentially gorgeous, shining hair appears to shed lightly and will require care...a periodic grooming and great nutrition would be perfect to keep her coat as beautiful and cottony-soft as it can be.
Carly appears to be fine with other dogs but appreciates those that are respectful of her smaller size. Carly has been great with my 14 and 15 year old daughters and me! I haven't seen her around smaller kids, so that's an unknown. She's excellent with my mom, but might be a bit puppyish for a very advanced senior.
Carly is a truly smart, very loving...and often very comical pup - true to her breeds!! What a gem of a best friend for a family with older kids or retirees who want to include a very cute and fun dog in their lives. Copper has the potential to be an exceptional and loyal companion. I know that Farfel's is very excited to participate in finding this special Doxie/Terrier her forever family.
Carly appears to have a small cherry eye in one eye. By definition a cherry eye is a very simple issue involving the weakening of anchoring tissue on an ocular gland that's sometimes referred to as a third eyelid In dogs. This third eyelid plays a role that promotes oxygen supply and tear production to the eye. When working correctly, the third eyelid stays tucked away and out of sight. However, when anchoring tissue is not fully doing its job, this third eyelid can protrude from behind the eye and will be visible as a red or pink mass that partially obscures the corner of the eye. This is not a grave situation and can be fixed through massage or a minor procedure that Farfel's will pay for if our Denver vet is used.
Carly will be arriving on transport in Denver in early April. If interested in this best friend who is so full of love and personality, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 303-443-7730.
